As well giving your time as a volunteer, another way to support STN is through a monetary donation. Large or small, any such gift is very much appreciated. Please email our treasurer at if you, your company or organisation requires further information or would like to make a personal or corporate donation. Alternatively you can donate via the PayPal Giving website. Unfortunately we are not yet able to claim gift aid on donations.

STN is a registered charity (no. 1001700) and receives no money from the UK Government or the Local Council.

(Please note that STN is unable to provide commercial advertising on our recordings, promotional literature or website)

We're very grateful to our existing donors who help us to keep the weekly news service free to subscribers. You may like to know that we have recently used funds to buy replacement memory sticks.

Amazon Smile

There's now an easy way to support Sheffield Talking News for shoppers on Amazon. The ‘Amazon Smile’ website is exactly the same as the main Amazon site but can donate 0.5% of the value of your purchases to STN, at no cost to you. You can use it on a phone, tablet or PC, but only in a browser (Chrome, Edge, Safari etc) not in the Amazon App.

If you've not used Amazon Smile before, just go to in a browser, sign in with your usual Amazon ID and password, and choose ‘Sheffield Talking News’ as your charity.

If you already use Amazon Smile you can change the charity you support to STN by clicking 'Your Amazon Smile' under 'Account and Lists' (or the navigation menu on a mobile) and choosing 'Change Charity'.

If you do choose to support us in this way you can ‘bookmark’ the Amazon Smile page, so that you remember to shop on the Smile website, and the donations will go towards the vital work that STN does for our listeners.
